Do you get enough protein?
To begin with, food supplies you with the majority of the protein you need. But if you eat a plant-based diet, are a picky eater or exercise a lot, you may need to supplement with additional protein (1). Just remember that supplements cannot and should not replace a healthy diet.
Proteins - your body's indispensable building blocks
Proteins are essential nutrients that are part of a number of vital processes in your body. For example, the body uses proteins - after they are split into amino acids - to build and maintain muscles as well as skin, hair, nails and other tissues. Proteins also help to repair your muscles effectively after exercise, just as they can help you feel full for longer. You get about 20 different amino acids through your diet, eight of which are essential, since the body cannot produce them itself. The recommendation from the authorities is that adults need 0.8 g/kg to 2g/kg body weight proteins per day (2).
Does your diet contain enough protein?
Too little protein can lead to various implications such as loss of muscle mass, fragile hair and nails. If you often tend to feel like snacking, increasing the amount of proteins in your diet may help stabilise your blood sugar level and ensure a longer feeling of satiety. Following intake of proteins, your metabolism or energy expenditure increases, as the digestion of proteins requires extra energy. Therefore, this is an often-used strategy for weight management (3).
Support a strong, beautiful and resilient body with proteins
Whether your focus is a stronger body, prettier skin, hair and nails or a resilient body in balance, it's a great idea to be aware of whether your diet contains sufficient amounts of protein. The advantages of a strong, flexible and muscular body are about more than just the appearance. It’s also about reducing implications from injuries and wear and tear of the body, as well as optimising your well-being, your training efforts and your body's ability to recover more quickly.
